Scotia Physiotherapy is the oldest independently-owned physiotherapy clinic in Nova Scotia. At Scotia Physio there is a definite emphasis on accurate assessment and the appropriate use of manual therapy, exercise, and education for individualized patient care. Clients work directly with a specific physiotherapist, one-on-one, to develop a customized treatment plan based on the physical condition, lifestyle, and personal goals of each client. Our goals include activity maximization and recurrence prevention.

We are devoted to professional development for our staff and are also leaders in providing continuing education to others within our profession. Our therapists have extensive post-graduate training including:
manual and manipulative therapy
sports specialization
acupuncture and functional dry needling
concussion management
treatment of the jaw complex (“TMD“)
movement impairment diagnosis, and specialized exercise training

Core values of our clinic are integrity, expertise and respect practiced within a collaborative environment, which are reflected in our daily interactions with each other and our clients. We strive to get people in quickly and treat them effectively and efficiently, with empathy and compassion for the many ways in which people experience physical difficulty.

An initial visit will include evaluation of your injury  and surrounding joints that may affect your injury. This will involve a half hour of one-on-one assessment and treatment time with your therapist. Be prepared to be at the clinic for 45 minutes to an hour. You may be asked to arrive early to fill out some paperwork, which allows us to screen for medical conditions, previous injuries and surgeries that may affect this injury and its treatment.

We provide johnny shirts and shorts, but feel free to bring your own tank top for an upper body assessment, or shorts for a lower body assessment.
